Banana Bread Greek Yogurt


I have been trying to come up with different Greek yogurt recipes that don't involve peanut butter or chocolate.
Don't get me wrong.... I LOVE peanut butter and chocolate, especially when it's combined with Greek yogurt.... but sometimes you just need something a little different.
I eat this as my breakfast and/or dessert but it also makes a fabulous dip served with fruit.
According to Myfitnesspal, the entire recipe is: 250 calories, 35 carbs, 6 fat, 14 protein, 5 fibre. 
It has all the flavors of banana bread. 
Seriously.
So good.


Banana Bread Greek Yogurt

Ingredients
1 small banana, mashed
1/2 cup 0 fat, plain Greek yogurt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp ground flax
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp finely chopped pecans, toasted

Directions
In a small bowl combine all ingredients.


Stir until very combined.
Serve immediately or chill, covered until ready to serve.


It's that simple.
P.S. - the pecans don't HAVE to be toasted but it certainly adds more flavor the the dish!
I like to serve mine with a few reserved sprinkles of pecans and a slice of banana just to fancy it up.
The monster bowl just adds to the ambiance.
